notalush (5512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Growler at Peter’s NY gathering - lightly hazy reddish brown - man, this tastes like raspberry cough syrup mixed with some wheaty character and light belgian-ish phenols - quite sweet, adding to the syrupy character that reminds me of cough medicine - blah.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Pours a light pinkish with a violet hue , hazy and a nice lasting white head. Aroma is fruity with raspberries- slight tart cherry- and fruit juice but is also spicy with Belgian yeast- and a bit peppery, slight solvent and some wheaty cream character. Flavor seems a bit weak and watered down for a 8% fruit beer- some flowery notes- violet, then some weak cherry and rasp fruit cocktail with some wheaty and doughy notes- more spice and phenols in the end. Just seemed a bit on the bland side.

Skyview (5352) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Sampled during BA monthly gathering at Stub & Herb’s in Minneapolis, MN. From a growler, pours a hazy reddish caramel brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin ring. Aroma of wheat malt, some bing cherries, flowery hops, a hint of red berries, and some vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of cherries, caramel malt, some light earthy spices, and a hint of raspberries. Finish is semi-tart with a nice balance of cherry and caramel malt with plenty of alcohol warmth.

ChainGangGuy (4595) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Appearance: Hazy, reddish-pink body with a small, fine, white head. Smell: Vague pale maltiness and a waft of tart-smelling cherry juice, with only a minor backing of raspberries. Taste: Light, brief maltiness then it’s off to the tart cherries and raspberries, though as with the aroma, it’s mostly cherries. A touch of sweetness emerges briefly, but eventually gives way to more tartness. Tiny pinch of spices. Finishes tart. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Slight syrupiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: A reasonably pleasant interplay between the tart and sweet fruit components, but, for me, it leaned decidedly on the tart side of things. Decent overall.
